How Companies Evolve with Sage 100 Manufacturing Technology

Discrete manufacturers have undertaken huge transformation as of late, and for many reasons including the pandemic, the cascading uncertainty, outlandish customer expectations and the pressure of green agenda. It's never east to change and many businesses find it difficult or impossible to evolve. Find out why discrete manufacturers that rely on Sage 100 manufacturing technology (known as Sage Operations Management) have been able to act quicker to enact more sustainable, digital business methods.

Going Green Is Complex

Manufacturing change is increasingly driven forward by the green agenda as well as ongoing legislative change. The "circular economy" by definition is a system aimed at eliminating waste and inspiring the continual use of resources. Servitization is a green trend that shifts the focus of a company's offering from products to services. Attaching services to the products you sell adds complexity and new demands out of your systems. It's clear to see how the green movement is impacting traditional and discrete manufacturing.

It's no longer a choice for manufacturers to evolve on multiple fronts, including adopting the latest technology to help make their organization compliant with sustainability regulations, but also other local or industry-specific regulations. The more successful companies have migrated operations to the cloud to gain new efficiencies and flexibility that led to cost savings. The technology helps them fulfill the promise of the circular economy and allows manufacturers to operate successfully and leave behind the restrictive business models that previously hindered their flexibility, scalability, and future growth.

According to research by IDG-Sage, recent legislative changes are predominantly viewed as positive by manufacturers and lead to higher quality standards, competitiveness, profitability, as well as risk management. Despite the fact that the initial investment, technology migration, and the potential for process and cultural inertia they will most likely encounter there is ROI. The cost, efficiency and growth-enabling benefits of cloud manufacturing technology will be worth it.
